I've read through many posts where this issue was encountered, but haven't identified the actual fix that was used (for example: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/squarespacecom)
The extract I get from squarespace has a .xml.gz extension: "partial-snapshot-12.22.13-062433.xml.gz"
I extract the .xml file using WinRar and try to import to my wordpress blog using a "Movable Type and TypePad" tool, and also using the WordPress Import tool. The wordpress import tool gives me the following error: "Sorry, there has been an error.
This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number"
While the Movable Type and TypePad option simply says "All done. Have fun!", but no posts are created.
The .XML file is ~4mb, so there should definitely be data there.
Also, when I try to open and read the .xml file, I get errors indicating that it is not in Unicode UTF-8.
I'm stuck here... any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
